Evergreen PV agrees solar inverter partnership deal with Samil Power

July 25, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
One of the UK’s largest importers and distributers of solar PV kits, Evergreen PV, is entering into a partnership with solar inverter manufacturers, Samil Power.

Based in Oxfordshire, and founded in 2010, Evergreen PV has signed a deal to supply Samil Power’s  inverters to the UK market.

With one of the world’s largest R&D teams, the quality of the inverters from Samil Power is highlighted by the fact that more than 100,000 homes now use them.

The company currently produces three series of grid-tied inverters: The 1-5kW SolarRiver series for residential projects, the 10-17kW SolarLake series for commercial projects, and the 100-500kW SolarOcean series for large-scale solar PV Plants.

Last summer the PHOTON Laboratory tested Samil Power’s SolarRiver SR4K4TLA1 product, describing it as ‘the best inverter produced in Asia,’ and also one of the ‘best products in the 5 kW power class.’ Also, in June 2012, Samil Power picked up a similar commendation for its SolarLake three phase inverters.

Justin Claxton, Managing Director at Samil Power UK, says: “We’ve spent a lot of time developing our products, and therefore are very particular in who we choose to supply them to. What we have is a very good product at a very good price, with low production costs. This gives us a massive advantage in the UK market where investors of residential and commercial solar schemes, are looking for very good alternatives to their traditional brands.”

Samil Power has production plants in China and more than 10 branches worldwide. One factory occupies 33,000m2 (approximately 8.23 acres) of land, while another, approximately six times larger in size, is under construction. Samil Power also has two R&D centers which are about 10,000m2 in total.
